Hampton to the CAA

Hampton University’s basketball courts were quiet this weekend as the men’s and women’s basketball teams sat out because of COVID protocols. But the Pirates made a racket when news broke Friday that HU could be bolting the Big South to join the Colonial Athletic Association.

Details are scant, and so far HU hasn’t commented on the possible move. But Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports, citing unnamed sources, reported that Hampton would join the CAA on July 1.

The CAA is looking for new members as the league anticipates the departure of James Madison for the Football Bowl Subdivision and the Sun Belt Conference. Hampton would join William & Mary and Richmond in football as CAA members. The Pirates left the MEAC to join the Big South in 2018.
